The group discussed a potential new arrangement in which payments for inspections are made directly from the vessel operator to OVID inspectors. Aligning the payment process with SIRE is also being considered. The OCIMF Legal Committee will review this issue in detail in the October meeting. The review of OVMSA and involvement of vessel operators was also discussed, and the review will have input from International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) members.

Next meeting: 19 February 2019, Houston, USA
